The British Museum - Sir Hans Sloane (1660–1753) collected more than 71,000 objects which he wanted to be preserved intact after his death. So he bequeathed the whole collection to the nation and on 7 June 1753, an Act of Parliament established the British Museum. The founding collections largely consisted of books, manuscripts and natural specimens with some antiquities (including coins and medals, prints and drawings) and ethnographic material. In 1757 King George II donated the 'Old Royal Library' of the sovereigns of England and with it the privilege of copyright receipt. It opened to the public on 15 January 1759.

International Foundation for Art Research - Since its inception, IFAR's Authentication Research Service, unique in the U.S., has objectively researched art works whose authenticity or authorship are in question, or whose existence is unknown to specialists in the field. Because IFAR's experts and researchers are held harmless from litigation and have no financial interest in the outcome, they are free to render objective opinions. IFAR is also free to publish its research in the IFAR Journal or elsewhere. In this way, IFAR can inform the public and scholars about issues relating to authenticity and help prevent the trafficking of forged or misattributed art.
